Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

The 2 correct answer not guessed is just the reigning AL Pennant winners, the Cleveland Indians. They had a tough matchup on the road in Texas, but prevailed.

Also un-guessed by the contestants were the Oakland Athletics, who beat the Angels at home.

On to the correct answers!

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

This question's SHEEP answer was played by 7 contestants, including yours truly. With Clayton Kershaw going at home against the hapless Padres, the Los Angeles Dodgers were somehow an ace last year. They didn't slip through the cracks this year. Kershaw did what he does, 7IP, 2H, 1ER, 8K in a 14-3 victory that was never close.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next most popular answer was played by 5 entrants. The Colorado Rockies may or may not be good this year, but they can definitely score some runs. They beat the Brewers 7-5.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next corrects are a trio of 4-point answers. As mentioned, the Detroit Tigers beat the White Sox in the makeup game behind a dominant showing by Mr. Kate Upton.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our final 4-point correct is the New York Mets. Thor had his unhittable stuff working for the Metropolitans, as they blanked my Braves 6-0.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next correct was played by 3 contestants. The Boston Red Sox have the reigning AL Cy Young winner, and they took care of the Pirates in Fenway, 5-3.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Question 1 closes with three aces.

The Baltimore Orioles walked off with a Trum-bomb in the 11th inning vs the Blue Jays, 3-2.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Perhaps our face-meltiest ace is the Philadelphia Phillies, who won on the road in Cincinnati.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

And with our final ace, our reigning PEEHS champion starts 2017 right where he finished 2016, in first place. The Houston Astros shut out the Mariners on Opening Day, 3-0.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

With a SHEEP score of 7, plus 10 different correct answers submitted, incorrects will receive a score of 17 for this question.

As always, let me know if you see a mistake.

We've got a little 2.5 week break so the sample sizes for the coming questions aren't totally meaningless.

The next reveal will be during Sunday Night Baseball on April 23rd.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

It's good that Cruizn is at the bottom of the list.

And that I am first among the 4 point scorers.

It was pretty funny when ec_outlaw texted me Sunday night asking me if I liked his PEEHS answer and wondered if it was an ace and I got to respond that that wasn't the question.

If your parents are olds, make sure they know that chest pains + shortness of breath = call 911 NOW. Mom did, ambulance came, and she coded when they got to the hospital. Lucky for her that was basically the best place to be if you're going to code, so they took her right to the cardiac cath lab, put a stent in, and she's been basically fine since. Need to make some lifestyle changes, cut back on sodium, and take a bunch of new meds, but she should be alright.

Spoiler Alert: my 4 steals got there already.

More spoilers: my answers for questions 4, 6, and 7 are way off pace.

If you picked Semien or Owings, you are probably right.
